EA Access launched a little over a year ago exclusively on Xbox One, and today, it’s the PC’s turn as EA has announced Origin Access has launched.

Origin Access is a new membership service for PC gamers on Origin that is launching with instant access to 15 EA titles, including Battlefield 4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Sims 3, and SimCity, to name a few. Origin users will pay $4.99 per month to not only gain access to full version of over a dozen PC games, but also will be given access to PC games prior to their official release and can save 10% on all Origin purchases ranging from full games to DLC and content packs.

      It's not a terrible deal, but I'll wait for the Vault selection to grow a bit. Though, I can't really think of any backlog EA games I'm dying to play.

      Ya, not a terrible deal. If you haven't played those BF games, it's not a bad deal to burn through the single player campaign and move on. Same for DA, but that'll probably take you longer than 1 mo.

      Their mix of titles is odd, but I guess they're trying to appeal to all genres.

      Too bad the subs aren't cross device. Even if it was just like a $2 option, that would be awesome.

      Hmmm, once/if they add Battlefront, I could see myself paying $5 to play it for a month.

        It is a little odd considering how easy it is to get a demo out to those interested. Before you had the ugly business of getting a disc to a person and the costs associated with that. I guess someone has run the numbers and it's not worth the cost to cut up a demo for people to try.

        I also think most of those demos wouldn't be indicative of what the real product is anyway.
